Textbook Problem

Which of the following statements is/are true?

  1. (a) Breaking the P—O bond in ATP is an exothermic process.
  2. (b) Making a new bond between the phosphorus atom in the phosphate group being cleaved off ATP and the Oil group of water is an exothermic process
  3. (c) Breaking bonds is an endothermic process.
  4. (d) The energy released in the hydrolysis of ATP may be used to run endothermic reactions in a cell.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

whether the given statements are true/false has to be stated.

Concept introduction:

Exothermic reaction: Energy is released in the form of heat and light. Energy is released because the total energy of the reactant is greater than total energy of the product. For an exothermic reaction the change in enthalpy is always negative.

Endothermic reaction: To proceed an endothermic reaction external energy is required in the form of heat. These raections can be spontaneous or non-spontaneous process. Total energy of the product is greater than reactant. For endothermic reaction the change in enthalpy is always positive.

Explanation

Reason for the correct statements:

(b) Making the new bond between the phosphrous atom in the phosphate group being cleaved off ATP and OH group of water is an exothermic process is a true statement beacause two bonds are form one P-O bond connecting to phosphate group and one O-H

The energy released during the bond formation is much higher than the value required during the bond breaking of phsophate group from ATP, which makes it an exothermic process.

(c) Breaking bond is an endothermic process is a true statement. To break a bond more energy is required. So, external energy is required in the form of heat.

(d) ) The energy released in the hydrolysis of ATP can be used to run endothermic reaction in the cell is true statement...
